Embracing an al-fresco summer with Fern Living 

In today's world, having a beautiful and comfortable outdoor space to unwind and relax has become more important than ever. Spending time outdoors, surrounded by nature and being with your loved ones can bring about significant physical and mental health benefits, with many people seeing their garden as a peaceful escape from the stresses of everyday life. British Garden Centres, the UK's largest family-run group, is proud to introduce Fern Living - its exclusive brand of high-end, sophisticated outdoor furniture.

Having space to entertain friends and family is deemed the most appealing garden feature for consumers in the UK, gardens are no longer just places to work in and look at, they now form part of everyday living.  Research by YouGov for HTA revealed that 70% of consumers use their gardens for relaxation and 42% for entertaining friends and family.

Fern Living was designed to cultivate timeless elegance for your outdoor haven and these furniture sets will enhance the overall look of your garden and create a wonderful space for relaxing and socialising.

Relaxation outdoors

Rattan and wooden furniture have soared in popularity, following the neutral and natural interiors trend, blurring the lines between home décor and outdoor style.   The traditional Fern Living Dalby 4-Seat set turns the garden into an outdoor room and extension of the home, with a pick of parasol and cushions turning al-fresco dining into relaxation in seconds.    Enjoy the durability of nature with our FSC acacia wood Dalby furniture which is crafted to last for generations, with the traditional red/brown finish and unique grain pattern enhancing the elegance of any garden. Rest assured that every component of our furniture is made to last, with fittings zinc coated for rust resistance and long life. Assembling your new furniture is a breeze with our easy-to-follow instructions, and when not in use, simply fold and store it away until the next time the sun shines.

As the weather heats up, why not go for ultimate relaxation outdoors with our Fern Living Ripley 4-seat set with its luxurious and lush cushioned chairs offering both your comfort and pleasure whilst relaxing in the sun?
